The Whitechapel Gallery hosts the very first retrospective of work by the internationally renowned artist Hannah Höch (1889-1978).
Focusing on her works on paper, the ambitious exhibition brings together more than 100 of her distinctive creations, all of which were produced between 1910 and the 1970s. The collection illustrates just how Höch managed to establish collage as a preferred medium for satirical images, adding a touch of poetic beauty to their form. With much of her art considered to be some of the most radical of the time, she was admired by contemporaries such as George Grosz and Theo van Doesburg yet ignored by traditional art history.
With her efforts now more relevant than ever, Höch is finally getting a deserved place in the spotlight with the striking retrospective.
